Wikipedia: Cursive
Cursive (also known as script, among other names) is any style of penmanship in which characters are written joined together in a flowing manner, generally for the purpose of making writing faster, in contrast to block letters. It varies in functionality and modern-day usage across languages and regions; being used both publicly in artistic and formal documents as well as in private communication. Formal cursive is generally joined, but casual cursive is a combination of joins and pen lifts. The writing style can be further divided as “looped”, “italic” or “connected”.

Again. False. @_charlescornell invented jazz when he decided music can be played in cursive. And he has more followers than you know so you know he’s an expert on the subject.
